Description:

The Missourian Media Group in Washington, Mo, has an immediate opening for a city government reporter. Our current city government reporter is relocating outside of our community due to her husband’s work.

Seeking a reporter who can not only cover city meetings, but can go beyond the meeting to help our readers understand how the decisions made at city hall impact their lives.

The job requires strong reporting and writing skills and fluency in digital and social media along with competency in photography. 

The Missourian is an award-winning, twice-a-week, digital first newsroom. We offer a full benefit package and a competitive salary. The Missourian is a 10,000-paid circulation paper with a team-oriented staff.  We offer good pay and benefits, including health insurance, 401(k) plan and profit sharing.

If you are passionate about community journalism, this is an excellent opportunity for the right person in Washington, Missouri, about 50 miles west of St. Louis. 

Applicants should have a college degree, with preference given to those graduating with degrees in journalism. Some professional newsroom experience preferred.
